Pink Golden Circle 10:00-18:00​
This tour combines history, natural phenomena and relaxation. You visit three of Iceland´s most famous places - Gullfoss waterfall, Geysir (or Gaysir as we like to call it) hot spring area and Þingvellir national park. 

We also make a stop in Laugarvatn, a small village that sits on the banks of a lake by the same name. The town is famous for its natural sauna, built above a real live hot spring. The original sauna was built in the 1920s and was little more than a shack with two compartments, built above the hot spring that bubbles and gurgles below your feet. Today, however, it takes pride of place in the über-modern Fontana Laugarvatn, and is complemented by a dry sauna plus hot tubs of varying temperatures and descriptions. A visit to this amazing natural sauna is something that all visitors to Iceland should get to experience. 

After relaxing at the Laugarvatn Fontana we will head to Þingvellir national park situated on the tectonic plate boundaries of the Mid-Atlantic Ridge.

Lunch at Efstidalur 12:30-13:30​
​We will have a delicious lunch at Efstidalur farm. There we will enjoy a great buffet with variaties of fresh fish, meat, vegetarian courses & deserts.

Notice: Drinks are not included and we kindly ask you to let us know if you have any special food requirements. On the buffet there will be a mix of meat, fish & vegetables. ​

Optional Dinner in town 20:00-21:30​
You can join us for a group dinner at a local restaurant.
TBA.
